got one of these
last spring. Leica lens, takes amazing pictures. Long telephoto retracts to a very wide angle. The only drawback is that it's a little bulky for a shirt pocket; if you really want a forget-it's-there camera, you might want to look elsewhere. But this really does take much, much better pics than my last digital.
Although I prefer Nikon DSLRs, I'm a big fan of the little Canon ELPH point & shoots.
Take a look at the PowerShot SD1300 IS for $179. 12MB, 28-112mm (equivalent) zoom lens, image stabilization, excellent quality and great design.
I was about to suggest one of the Lumix series cameras - we have the Lumix DMC-ZS7 and I don't have a single bad thing to say about it. We get terrific pictures with it and it does high def video really well, also. A little more than your budget but it would be well worth saving up the extra 50-60 bucks.

I'm an idiot.
I thought you meant movie cam.
I have a Sony Cybershot that I use on land and I have the Sony underwater housing and I've taken it past 100' deep on over 400 dives.
14 meg Cybershot - $169 - Linky
I'd always say Canon, Nikon or Olympus as a guide. You may be able to get one of the bottom end Canons in your budget.
